Any idea what this is on about?


"Covers the two experimental locos, in particular showing the vast amount of money poured into the British model for such a low return"

So why wouldn't we start the first RZD thread on the new 1chan?

As usual: I provide you with stuff, you provide me with questions and topics for discussion on the subject. Something like this basically.

But I think in case of RZD it would be useful only for <400-km range trains with only places for sitting, the niche (if we are talking of intercity service) which is currently being taken over by Lastochka EMUs (Siemens Desiro modified and produced by Ural railway engineering works of Sinara Group), by the way a bad decision but that's not the point, so there are only a few trains like Bryansk of Voronezh express trains or also not a whole lot of regional suburban trains which aren't DMUs (which often use just random unused FPK's passenger cars and random loco) for which this technology could be used so it isn't much real perspectives. But still RZD could order from Transmashholding these 160 km/h double-deckers with monocabs for these Bryansk and Voronezh rapid trains (or also the upcoming double-deck express from Rostov-na-Donu to Adler) and connect them to EP20 locomotives which are already used with them and that's probably the only case which will benefit from this technology but… probably RZD have never even looked into this.

Well I hope 1524 is satisfied with my as always overly complicated and boring answer.

> Long train is long

Oh, really? And here I am with >>4199 a 14-car double-deck train with one thousand three hundred sixty seats (that's the world record for the regular train as far as I'm concerned)…

*being sarcastic of course. If I would be really snobby about number of cars than there will come USA to crush my ego under their 32-ton axle load. Still we have longer passenger trains than them:)


>Still we have longer passenger trains than them:)

Longer bread lines too… I kid!





I really like these two pictures!

Fantastic info here btw. While I may not comment often, your Russian train threads are a source of interest to me. My curiosity also extends to Russian far east, from about Lake Baikal to the Kamchatka Krai region. Beautiful country around there.

Woah… The stepsister is getting something new.

Month old: A DD200 diesel-electric road switcher.

How well will they work out for JR Freight?

That thing is a apparently adorable 180 kW or so.

They both feel like a quick and easy low cost renewal solution (not helped by their financial situation I guess) considering the sunset of the DE10. That sideways cab control tho, much like its predecessors and hybrid cousin.

Trains, they're coming boys!


You may want to have a gander at those numbers my friend.

I am surprised they post advanced level 2 questions like that.

I have no idea what happened there.


"We know that the ÖBB wants to compete with AUA (airline) on the Innsbruck-Wien line. Rail already wins by ticket prices, the travel time is the only advantage for flying. But things seem to change here. Passengers were surprised when a faulty passenger information display showed 1195 km/h. This inspired out cartoonist…"

In August, 1967, two freight trains collided at Shinjuku station, resulting in a fire that ate 72 tons of jet fuel, and an all-day shutdown.

The cause, IIUC, was driver distraction and slow braking action.

Those of you that have watched driver’s-eye videos from Japan, have very likely often heard a reminder of this incident, namely the tic-toc-tic-toc sound heard from the ATS ringing ‘upcoming stop’ until the train actually stops.



Not to be a troll or anything but…
72 tons is like one or two tank cars and…
hurr durr did it melt steel beams?


Really just one tank car.

A good average is 30 tons per empty car and 100 tons loaded. At least for hoppers and tanks. Autoracks and pigs are stupid light even while loaded. Like only 30-40 tons.


No, but it gave JFK autism on the moon. Having said that, I might be getting my crazies mixed up.

245 km/h (152mph) 1980 Rosslyn to De Wildt South Africa Locomotive 6e 1525….High speed pantographs was tested for British rail on locomotive number E1525. The idea was abandoned thereafter. E1525 was modified for high speed experiments and holds the world narrow gauge speed record of 245 km/h (153mph )

Someone has actually done something for those that want to play commuter train driver.
